Green Magic Homes

Green Magic Homes

Green Magic Homes is a prefabricated modular building system, with structural components made in FRP (Fiber Reinforced Polymer), which are specifically designed to fit together to provide infinite design possibilities for spaces, access, lighting, ventilation and room connections. Shipping world wide is made easy with modules that are sized and packaged to fit into shipping containers.

The magic of the “green” and the effect of heat insulation, is provide by the earth embankments or buttresses on the sides of the structure.

Once covered with a top layer of soil, the embankments and top layer are wrapped in a geo-textile fabric, covered entirely with sod or other vegetation. This stabilizes the earth in the long term by the rooting action of the plants on top.

Green Magic Homes components are fast and easy to assemble. Each component has perforated flaps which screw and seal together. The entire structure is then anchored to the foundation with galvanized steel screws. Components with composite ducts and channels for electrical wiring and water pipes, as well as mechanical ventilation ducts, can be added to the shell at any point necessary.

Green Magic Homes kits include: doors and windows made of treated pine, oak or fir, galvanized steel screws, elastomer for sealing component flaps together, packing and Assembly Manual.

These are shipped ready to be installed. Some parts of the technology are manufactured in fiber cement board, which are joint to the FRP modules with nylon ties and sealed with elastomer.

Green Magic Homes is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina but has distributors worldwide.
